Sequestered Thoughts
Written: By Tom Wright

I sequestered some thoughts today at dawning, 
Other days I’ve allowed these thoughts free reign.
But today, I’ve a tendency, to sit here yawning,
Nothing worthy escapes though I rack my brain. 

Perhaps its a temporary psychological block,
Because...Read More

Schizophrenia Never ending voices
No one knows what it’s like
To be trapped inside your mind
To question all of your thoughts 
To wish that you were blind
This illness is a real thing
It wasn’t just made up
Every word is a sting
They always come for me
These voices...Read More

LIFE IT IS
Words stumble out of my mouth, I grope for words 
Trying to pull words out of thin air
I rack my brain for thoughts but it wouldn’t budge
I stare at things for long time
Just trying to figure what my thoughts are
Looking...Read More

A lovers death
 The last piece finally broke,
The one i've held onto desperatly,
For it was the one piece,
I used to define me.
 I stare at the shattered splinters of hope,
Lying lifeless in my tattered hands,
How did i let this happen,
I rack my brain to...Read More

Alone I Stand
Alone I stand, it's midnight and from my mind with a steady hand 
As I write through my pen onto this blank pad, inking many thoughts I have
Assembling into rhymes, unknown riddles of my life transcribed
Into endless lyrical lines, asking...Read More

INSPIRATION
I am sitting at my desk
Looking for a bright idea.
I look at the empty paper
Waiting for a poem for the galleria.

I waited for the right time
When I was in the mood to write.
But now I wait for inspiration
To let my...Read More

XLVIII
I wish I knew the reason why
An X, L, V and I, I, I
Is how one can identify
Which Super Bowl this is.

Though Roman numerals I hate,
Without them, one could not equate
Those letters with game 48 - 
It’s almost like a...Read More

I haven't found the words to say
So I just turn and walk away     
Sometimes I walk by as she bats her eyes
I try to hide the smile as I get butterflies
A leap of faith
A heart on...Read More

The Wretched Prince
"The Wretched Prince"

You were my hope
And all my dreams,
But all of that has changed,
It seems

Because I treated 
You so bad,
Destroying everything
We had

And if I could
Just turn back time,
I'd claim you and,
I'd make you mine

I'd treat you
Like a Princess fair,
Hold you...Read More

What Now
The leaves turn brown and the cold sets in
As darkness falls, my joy grows dim
I'm unsure of the problem and why it arose
Why have you just appeared-suppose only God knows
It was never a problem- and I managed okay
But all of...Read More

I have writers block right now, hate this feeling.....

I have an idea in my head, but, the words escape me....

'Betrayed Yet Again'
He was tall, 
dark & handsome!
I was ready 
to pay him a ransom!

I fell for 
his rookie charm,
All I wanted 
was to hold his arm!

So I approached him 
with fear in my mind,
To my surprise, 
he was super kind!

But I...Read More

Questions without Answers
I find myself at a quandary,
A hopeless dead-end alley.
I sit, I think, I wait, I despair,
I rack my brain for remembrance.
I search seas and find nothing.

I am a sailor without stars,
An explorer without a compass,
A globe without a north.
Blank and...Read More

Possession
Rack my brain seething demons
foaming diseased embellishments
whisper foundly in a chaotic masterpiece
what doubtful lovers bed a widows heart
the satanic satin sheets that lie in between supple thoughts
reething sickness traveling foundly throughout the soul
into the tips of tears that form an...Read More

My Weekend
My weekend is special to me.
One I look forward to all along.
I work overtime for the extra money
I live tired all the time.
Barely able to keep my eyes open,
afraid I'll fall asleep
traveling to and fro.
I rack my brain looking for...Read More

Unscripted acts of love
Scene one
Why do we continuously watch this show?
When we've already seen the ending many a times before
I may be repeating the lines to my script
somehow you easially can get me all unfocused 
and upset once again!
And now I lost my...Read More

Picking At My Head
Picking at my head
I rack my brain for
An excuse to hate you
And one glares at me
But it is not enough
You did what your heart told you
If I loathed you for that
I would be detesting myself
Only months ago
